You know what? Starting off is different when there are cars, cats and people to crash into if you do it wrong. I ever have crashed into any of these, but in my village (only in my village!) I fear it, so I start poorly. It is very annoying. People must have been so FRUSTRATED before they invented armchair phsychology! Never knowing why they were doing anything.
I really love my bike, readers. I love looking at it, and talking to it, and RIDING IT. I love bendy roads. I love using the foot pedal to gain control over turns and hills. I love pulling in the clutch so that minute chocolate box villages aren’t alarmed by me or so I don’t hit any geese. I love smiling inside of my helmet because I am doing it. When I put it in the garage, I give it a kiss on the mirror.
I get an unreasonable amount of pleasure from wearing a neckerscarf when I ride my bike.
